Pg symptoms vs. Clomid

Sun, 08-29-2010 - 4:53pm
So, here I am CD23, I am guessing 8DPO based on a somewhat + OPK accompanied by major CM that day and serious O pain,no temping though. I have sore bbs, not just sore but painful twinges which is a good sign for me but I am also having some cramping which makes me think AF. Ugh. Oh and I took a FRER hpt this morning but of course BFN. =( I guess I am wondering if Clomid can cause the sore bbs? Mine never hurt like this before AF but ALWAYS hurt like HECK when I'm pg. I am not feeling very optmistic though after the BFN this morning.

The one time I tried clomid, I don't remember it giving me any pg like symptoms. Just crabbiness (and that's an everyday thing. ;)

I'm also on cycle day 23, I have major breast swelling and they are sore but I know I am not preggers because DH and I not in same location until end of September (intl. move etc;)

For me, the above symptoms just mean a strong ovulation, I use herbs and acu etc; and that gives me strong O's.

I never got sore breasts with clomid but back then (20 years ago) I didn't get that anyhow.

Pregnancy tests never came out positive for me that early, when I was pregnant with my 4th I tested early and it came out negative. However I knew I was pregnant and I waited a week to test again and it was positive.

Fingers crossed for you!!!

One more thing- last 2 times I got pregnant I did have implantation twinges on around 8-10 DPO.
Are they cramps or twinges? Do you usually get pre-menstrual cramps or is this completely new/different this cycle?

Clomid never did that to me either.

I get a certain amount of symptoms right before AF that mirror PG symptoms anyways, but they are heightened with PG.

One more thing I forgot- clomid supposed to help with LP- the rise in progest makes for sore breasts so I always look at that as a good sign(strong ovulation and good progest levels). In TCM it is a sign of liver qi congestion though.

My last 2 pregnancies I did not have sore breasts either but I also got pregnant 3 times without having a cycle in many years (due to nursing so many kids for so many years) and always worried I would not have enough progest but I did.

These cramps are twinges that sort of feel like AF cramps, but not really if that makes sense. I never get cramps usually and if I do it is the day AF comes, it makes me nervous because since my m/c my cycles have been weird so I wouldn't be shocked to start on CD23, I have even had one show on CD21, before m/c I was 29 days every month. The sore bbs are for sure there though, that has always been my clue that I was pg, in February one week before AF was to show I had that bad and if you could have seen the light bulb go off over my head when I realized what it meant, I didn't even need the pg test, been 11 yrs since I felt that but I knew what it was! So, I am hopeful girls but you know how that works usually, BFN, I will try to stay positive. Thanks so much for the answers, Clomid gave me HORRIBLE crabbiness/mood swings like you all said, but I didn't know if it did this too. So glad to hear it doesn't usually. B/W tomorrow and I see Dr. on Friday, I will know by then though, Dr. appt. is day before AF is due and HPT will pretty much give me the answer if I don't get info from b/w til then.
